After a run up to San Francisco airport to drop off my parents, we decided to spend the rest of the day in the city. It’s easy to forget how close San Francisco is to Santa Cruz and I know I get complacent about taking time to get there to take advantage of all the city has to offer. Even though I love the busyness of cities, I somehow always end up finding the quite nature spots in between all the buildings and the bustle.
The Presidio is one of my favorite areas and I was so thrilled to finally check out three installations by my favorite artist. Over the years, Andy Goldsworthy has installed a number of pieces in the Presidio using found materials. There is also a crack in the de Young Museums entry floor and a piece named Tree Fall which was closed the day we were there. These pieces are Spire, Earth Wall and Wood Line – be sure to check them out for yourself!
